Today's proclamation was arranged by the tireless and always amazing Dorothy Dietrich and Dick Brookz of the Houdini Museum in Scranton, who are also responsible for the reappearance of The Grim Game. Dorothy and Dick will present the official "Houdini Day" proclamation during their introduction to the film tonight at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.
The last time the City of Los Angeles declared a "Houdini Day" was in celebration of Houdini receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on October 31, 1975.
Below is a pic of a very happy Dorothy Dietrich just after we picked up the official proclamation at downtown's City Hall on Friday.
